Refreshing watermelon popsicles

From Shelby Moose, Crossing Rivers Health Registered Dietitian

Give this tasty recipe a try to help beat the summer heat.


  • 2 1/2 - 3 cups cubed, seeded watermelon
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • Optional: fruit, such as grapes, strawberries, kiwi, raspberries (may use fresh, frozen, or canned in 100% fruit juice)
  • Optional: 1/4 cup sugar
  • Optional: 1/2 cup yogurt


  1. Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until mixture is smooth.
  2. Pour the mixture into popsicle molds.
  3. If you do not have popsicle molds, that's okay! To make in small plastic cups, pour the watermelon mixture into 8 small cups, and cover each cup with foil.
  4. Poke a popsicle stick through the center of the foil and into the mixture.
  5. Freeze until firm (which can take several hours or overnight).
